RASHEEDAT AJIBADE FIRES NIGERIA PAST HAITI

The FC Robo forward was her team’s hero as first half strike handed the Falconets their first win of the championship
Nigeria secured her first victory at the ongoing Fifa U20 Women’s World Cup after a slender 1-0 win over Haiti.

Rasheedat Ajibade’s first half penalty handed Christopher Danjuma’s ladies maximum points – to brighten their chances of reaching the next stage.

The ladies came into the game on the back of their 1-0 defeat to Germany and anything short of victory would have spelt doom for them.

After a keenly contested opening minutes, Nigeria won a penalty after Anam Imo was fouled in the penalty area by Dougenie Joseph.

Ajibade made no mistakes as she converted the kick which gave the Falconets a slender first half lead.

The second half produced no goals as goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie pulled off several key saves to deny the debutants a chance to equalise.

Nigeria are now second in Group D with three points and they need a draw against China to confirm their place in the last eight.
